Tigers 7, White Sox 1: Ugly fourth extends ugly stretch

Two errors by Jose Abreu lead to five runs, and ninth loss in 10 games The White Sox of old turned out to be the cure for what ails old Justin Verlander. The Sox offense blew a couple of early opportunities, and the Sox defense blew a few plays in a five-run fifth that made the second half of this game a snoozer. They pushed one run across the plate against Verlander on a first-inning Adam Dunn sac fly, and a walk to Conor Gillaspie loaded the bases, but Verlander came back to freeze Tyler Flowers on an outside-corner fastball to end the threat. But the offense really came crashing to a...
